Index Numbers 



While index numbers are by no means the 
only form of statistical information provided 
in this Review, they do cover a large portion of 
the field. They consolidate a large amount of 
information into a single figure. They also 
provide a ready means of comparison among 
various series which would otherwise be shown 
in disparate terms such as tons, dollars, num- 
bers of employed persons, etc. This article is 
designed to illustrate in non-mathematical 
terms how index numbers are made and to 
point out some old and some new uses that 
can be made of them. 

Index Number Construction 

Previous articles have explained in detail the 
content and method of construction of the 
Cost-of-Living Index and the Canadian Farm 
Products Price Index. 0) While mention will be 
made of other types of index numbers, such as 
those of volume and value, the principles are 
the same throughout. There are two basic 
ingredients of price indexes; namely, the price 
relatives and the weighting system. The price 
relatives are merely individual prices expressed 
as a percent of the price in some time period 
chosen as a reference point and called a "base 
period". For example, a loaf of bread selling 
at 10 cents in the base period and 15 cents at 
the present time would have a price relative 
of 150. A set of relatives is made, covering all 
components of the particular index. The 
weighting system is a set of values; that is, a 
list of the dollar amounts spent on or received 
for the various articles. Thus each item is 
assigned a weight in accordance with its rel- 
ative importance. The individual price relatives 
are multiplied by their weights. These prod- 
ucts are then summed and divided by the 
sum of the value weights, to give a weighted 
average which is the final index. 

In actual practice there are a number of 
qualifications and refinements in the above 
outline. Instead of multiplying price relatives 
by values the same answer can be obtained by 
multiplying prices and quantities. The latter 

(1) "The Cost-of-Living Index", Canadian Statistical 
Review, February 1948. "Price Indexes of Agricultural 
Products and Farm Costs", Canadian Statistical Review, 
August, 1948. 



is actually the case in the early stages of combi- 
nation of the Cost-of-Living Index. At later 
stages, however, it becomes necessary to use 
price relatives rather than the prices them- 
selves. As there is no quantity unit such as 
yards or quarts for groups such as food or 
clothing, the calculation must use price rel- 
atives as soon as the first level of grouping is 
reached. Another reason for using relatives is 
that frequently the items within a group will 
not add up to full coverage of the group. 
Hence the average price relative of the covered 
items is weighted by the value of the entire 
group. This is called "imputation" — imputing 
to the available relatives the weight of the 
group of which they are a sample. 

Occasionally a certain price will become ob- 
solete, when, for instance, an article is no 
longer made to the same specification. In 
such cases, if the article is considered to give 
the same utility per dollar, it is "spliced in", 
that is, the new price for each item is given the 
same relative as the corresponding former 
item. Actually a new base price is obtained by 
dividing the new price by the relative of the 
old price. A month of overlap in which both 
old and new prices can be obtained or estimated 
is required for this procedure. In other cases, 
items will be "bumped in" rather than being 
"spliced in", that is, they will be priced or 
estimated in the base period and at the present 
time and their new relative inserted in place of 
the former obsolete one. A variation in this 
case occurs when it is not feasible or necessary 
to estimate the base price for the new article 
and the base price of the supplanted article 
must be accepted in its stead. 

Variations also occur in the weighting 
systems, but these are in general a matter of 
major revision at approximately ten-year in- 
tervals. The weighting systems should be 
changed whenever they have altered to such an 
extent that the current month-to-month and 
year-to-year changes of the index as well as 
the level over the base period, are affected. A 
greater latitude can be allowed in historical 
comparisons such as pre-war, post-war com- 
parisons, because the analytical uses of such 
comparisons would not normally require ab- 
solute accuracy. That is to say, the same 



analytical conclusions might be drawn whether 
the indexes were exact or approximate. On 
the other hand, the current movements are 
subject to much closer scrutiny and in the case 
of the Cost-of-Living Index, there is real 
concern with movements of as little as one- 
tenth of a point. For these reasons, new post- 
war weighting systems are being developed 
and new index numbers will be calculated 
with them. 

Alternative Weighting Systems 

The majority of the official indexes are base 
weighted, and the weights do not change from 
year to year. Fixed weight indexes may be 
arithmetically converted to any desired base 
by dividing each term in the series by the 
standing of the index at the chosen base. This 
is true of the published series of the Prices 
Section and the Agricultural Statistics Section 
and of the Business Statistics Section's Physical 
Volume of Industrial Production. However, 
the conversion may not give an exact answer if 
patterns of expenditure, production, etc., have 
changed. There are other types of index num- 
bers which are not convertible arithmetically 
but they do attempt to solve the problem of 
changing patterns. These are series which 
change weights, the simplest being the "Paas- 
ches" type which always uses current weights. 
Currently weighted indexes answer such a 
question as "what is the present cost, as 
compared with the base period, of this year's 
bill of goods?". The difficulty with this 
question is that when it is repeated next year, 
it tells what next year's bill of goods would 
cost, as compared with its cost in the base 
period, and as a result there is no pure price 
comparison between the two years in which the 
bills of goods have changed. In other words, 
some of the quantity change between the two 
years will be concealed in the resulting price 
comparison. 

These comments emphasize what is fre- 
quently called "the Index Number Problem" 
which is the problem of choosing the correct 
weighting system. The choice of the weighting 
system depends on what question the index is 
designed to answer. There is an answer to the 
question "what would the base period bill of 
goods cost then and now?", or to the question 
"what would this year's bill of goods cost then 
and now?", or to the question "what would an 
average bill of goods cost then and now ?". As it 



turns out in actual practice, the answers to 
these various questions have in nine cases out 
ten been within two or three per cent of one 
another even in such periods as the past decade. 
However, expenditure patterns are watched 
closely to determine when a major revision is 
required. In practice, it is necessary to make 
minor changes in weights when new develop- 
ments take place. When the new series is 
established, it may be linked onto the old series 
if a long historical series on a single base is 
required. 

Choosing a time base 

A standard base is required for all official 
indexes in order to facilitate ready comparison 
and to save the various users the trouble of 
conversion. There have been suggestions in 
the United States that the year 1950 would be 
a suitable post-war base because their Census 
is to be in that year, and it will provide much of 
the "benchmark" data required for weighting 
and subsequent estimation of a large variety 
of time series. For the same reason, 1951 might 
be a good base for Canadian indexes because 
our census is to be in that year. 

In choosing a base, a period of normality is 
desirable. The year 1926 was a desirable base 
period for price indexes because in that year, 
prices of various commodities were in a suitable 
relationship to one another. The post-war re- 
alignment of prices had been completed and 
the levels of employment and output were high 
and relatively stable. This stability reflected 
itself in individual prices as well as the general 
price level. 

On the other hand, 1933 would have been a 
poor base because some prices were out of line 
with any reasonable evaluation of costs. Sub- 
sequent comparisons based on that period 
would have shown the depressed prices to have 
risen a great deal and the stable prices to appear 
to be comparatively low. By 1937, some degree 
of normality had been restored, and when later 
it became necessary to establish a new official 
base, the period 1935 to 1939 was chosen. Any 
single year in this period would present diffi- 
culties for particular series and so the broader 
base was chosen. These are the considerations, 
some very practical and some theoretical, that 
have to be taken into account in determining 
a new official base for index numbers.

Some particular applications and 
new developments in the 
index number field 

Cost-of-living indexes are provided for sepa- 
rate cities, but these are not intended to show 
whether it costs more to live in one city than 
another. They show only to what extent prices 
have altered through time. A recent develop- 
ment in the field of inter-city living cost com- 
parisons was published by the United States 
Department of Labour under the title "City 
Worker's Family Budget". A budget for a 
working class family was established and priced 
in the various cities. The costs were adjusted 
for inter-city differences in climate and their 
effects on fuel and clothing expenditures, etc., 
otherwise the budget remained the same from 
city to city. The adjusted costs were compared 
from city to city. A similar comparison can be 
carried out as between countries rather than 
cities. These comparisons are called "inter- 
spatial" living cost comparisons as opposed to 
the "inter-temporal" comparisons with which 
we are already familiar. 

The present index of the Volume of Indus- 
trial Production is a base weighted type as 
described above. Experiments are being carried 
on with a new formula which deducts the quan- 
tity of input of each industry from the quantity 
of output. The resulting measure of net value 
added is compared directly with the similar 
measurement for the base period to produce an 
index number. The main theoretical criticism 
of the older index is that it fails to account for 
changes in the structure of industry or for 



changes in the nature of the work performed in 
individual industries. The new formula avoids 
this shortcoming. The measurement of quan- 
tity is in terms of constant dollars or in other 
words, current quantities valued at base period 
prices. In cases where the quantity of output 
or input is difficult to measure (e.g. sheet 
metal products), it is feasible to sample for 
price changes and to divide the price into the 
value in order to arrive at a measure of quan- 
tity. 

This procedure of separating the quantity 
and price components of value changes has 
also been applied to the figures of Gross Na- 
tional Expenditure. The items of Personal 
Expenditure on Consumer Goods and Services, 
Government Expenditure on Goods and Serv- 
ices, Investment in Housing, Plant and Equip- 
ment, Inventory Changes and Exports and Im- 
ports of Goods and Services, were recently 
shown in current and constant (1935-1939) 
dollars. (U The constant dollar figures showed 
what each of the above items of expenditure 
would have been if valued in terms of pre-war 
prices. The constant dollar figures can be 
converted to index numbers of quantity merely 
by dividing each one by a chosen base period 
constant dollar value. The procedure in the 
above mentioned estimates was to subdivide 
the items as finely as possible and to obtain for 
each subdivision a suitable price index. This 
index was then divided into the current dollar 
value to convert it to constant dollars.

Statistical Trends 



Production at mid-year was running ahead 
of the high levels of 1949. The index of indus- 
trial production in May stood at 195.6 as 
compared with 188.0 for the same month of 
1949, and the average for the first five months 
of the year was 3.6 per cent above the same 
period a year ago. Total value of retail trade 
increased by 6.1 per cent over May of last year 
and was 3.7 per cent higher on the basis of 
the five month average. Employment has 
risen steadily since the decline of last fall and 
winter. For eight of the ten provinces, the 
number of persons without jobs and seeking 
work on June 3, 1950 was 123,000. This is 25,000 
higher than the 98,000 unemployed at June 
4, 1949, but still only about 2) 2 per cent of the 
total labour force. Manitoba was not surveyed 
because of floods, and the survey did not 
commence in Newfoundland until last October. 
Merchandise exports in May exceeded last 
year's ifigure by $14 million, although for 
the first five months of the year a decline 
of about 2 per cent was registered. Increased 
United States buying in Canada has almost 
offset the decline in our exports to overseas 
markets. 

The outbreak of war in Korea has injected 
new uncertainties into the current situation. 
This development must be considered in rela- 
tion to the fact that the economies of Canada 
and the United States are operating close to 
capacity. 

Prices and the Cost-of- Living 

The Cost-of -Living Index rose 1.4 points to 
165.4 at June 1, the highest level on record 
and almost 5 points above June 1949. Since 
January the trend has been steadily upward, 
reversing the decline which began toward the 
end of 1949. The June increase in the index is 
accounted for almost entirely by the rise in 
meat prices. Since August 1948, when the 
embargo on shipments of beef and cattle to 
the United States was lifted, Canadians have 
had to meet the going United States' price 
for meat. 

The general index of wholesale prices (1926 = 
100) stood at 161.8 in May, an increase of 5.4 



points over May 1949. Since the beginning of 
the year this index has risen steadily. An 
increase in May of 1.7 points is attribuable to 
advances in the price of livestock, fresh meat, 
raw wool and wool cloth, lumber and timber, 
scrap iron and steel, brass and copper products, 
and lead and zinc and their products. In 
order of magnitude, the advances for the 
month were as follows: zinc and its products, 
11.6 per cent; lead and products, 9.8 per cent; 
scrap iron and steel, 8.3 per cent; wool cloth, 
6.2 per cent; brass, copper, and products, 4.6 
per cent; livestock, 4.4 per cent; raw wool, 4.0 
per cent; fresh meat, 3.9 per cent; and lumber 
and timber, 2.4 per cent. 

Comparisons of prices and the cost-of-living 
between Canada and the United States are 
illustrated in the chart on page iv. 

Some of the underlying factors bearing upon 
the present price situation are noted here. 
Shortages still persist in automobiles and cer- 
tain consumer durables. Instalment and char- 
ge purchases remain high ; for the first quarter 
of the year they were 37.3 per cent of total retail 
sales, slightly above the 37.1 per cent of last 
year. The construction program is continuing 
to put a strain on the supply of building mate- 
rials. United States' purchases of Canadian 
meat and lumber have caused large increases 
in the price of these commodities in Canada. 
The general rise in prices which began in the 
United States in the early part of the year has 
been renewed since the outbreak of war in 
Korea. These price increases have a direct 
effect on the Canadian price structure because 
of our extensive trade with the United States. 
Latest reports indicate that defence spending, 
estimated at $425 million for the fiscal year, 
will now be increased. These expenditures 
generate salaries and wages without causing 
corresponding increases in the supply of goods 
and services available for consumers. 



Employment and the Labour Force 

For eight of the ten provinces, the Labour 
Force Survey indicates that the total employed 
civilian labour force was 4,695,000 in June 1950, 
compared with 4,716,000 in June 1949. The 



number of persons without jobs and seeking 
work was higher than for June 1949, having 
increased by 25,000 persons. Unemployment 
insurance benefits paid in the first six months 
of the year were up $30 million over the same 
period last year. Payments in June were $6.6 
million compared with $4.1 million in June 
1949. 



Private and Public Investment 

Capital expenditures of Canadian business 
and government on new construction, machin- 
ery and equipment, appear to be exceeding 
earlier expectations, according to a mid-year 
survey by the Department of Trade and Com- 
merce. The revised estimate indicates that 
total capital expenditures in 1950 will be about 
$3,701 million or 3 per cent above the earlier 
forecast of $3,596 million, and 8 per cent above 
the 1949 level. Such huge capital outlays have 
done much to sustain the high levels of income 
and employment since the end of the war. 

The increase over last year is almost entirely 
in construction. Private housing expenditures 
are up by $20 million, and private institutions 
by $18 million. Government capital expen- 
ditures, including expenditures on government 
housing, provincial hospitals and schools, and 
municipal schools, show an increase of $96 
million. The largest increase is in business 
construction expenditures (including expendi- 
tures of government business enterprises) 
which are estimated at $912 million compared 
with $769 million last year. In total, the anti- 
cipated increase in construction expenditures 
is approximately 13 per cent above last year. 

It should be noted that these figures are 
based on a survey of intentions and projects 
underway at mid-year. Insofar as intentions 
are not realized, or estimates of cost are in- 
accurate, these figures may differ from realized 
expenditures at the end of the year. 

The wholesale price index of building and 
construction materials has shown a steady 
increase since January. In May it stood at 
209.6 as compared with 202.8 in May 1949. 
Part of the increase in capital expenditures 
may thus be attributed to rising prices, though 
it seems clear that in real terms a substantial 
gain will be shown over last year. 



Crop Conditions and 

the World Wheat Situation 

The condition of all major field crops in 
Canada as at June 30 was better than last year 
at the same time, with the single exception of 
sugar beets. 

Preliminary estimates of crop acreages in- 
dicate that approximately 27 million acres of 
wheat were sown in 1950, about 2 per cent 
below the 27.5 million acres seeded last year. 
The acreage of oats is placed at 11.6 million 
compared with 11.4 million in 1949, and barley 
at 6.6 million acres compared with 6.0 million 
acres. Rye acreage is practically unchanged, 
but flax is estimated to exceed half a million 
acres, approximately 70 per cent above last 
year's levels. 

By the latter part of July timely rains had 
promoted development of good stands of grain 
in the major grain growing areas of the Prairie 
Provinces and the production outlook was 
better than usual for this time of year. Crops, 
however, are much later than normal in many 
parts of the Prairies and there is accordingly 
danger of early frost damage in susceptible 
areas. Again, while moisture conditions were 
generally favourable at the end of July, many 
parts of Saskatchewan and Alberta still needed 
adequate rains to assure a satisfactory harvest. 

The prospects for the 1950 world wheat crops 
are generally bright. Late trade reports relative 
to the European wheat crops are fairly optimis- 
tic. According to the Food and Agriculture 
Organization, for the past two years export 
supplies of wheat from the producing countries 
have equalled or exceeded effective demand. 
With the expiry of the United Kingdom wheat 
contract on July 31, that country no longer 
stands ready to buy Canadian wheat at a 
guaranteed fixed price. However, the Inter- 
national Wheat Agreement calls for exports of 
some 212 million bushels of Canadian wheat 
during the 1950-51 crop year at prices which 
may not fall below $1.54 or exceed $1.98 per 
bushel. Canadian wheat for domestic con- 
sumption will also be sold within this price 
range during 1950-51. As of August 1, 1950, 
the Canadian Wheat Board's initial payment 
to the farmer is reduced from $1.75 per bushel 
to $1.40 per bushel for No. 1 Northern wheat 
at Fort William or Port Arthur. As in the past, 
farmers will participate further in whatever 
profits are made out of the disposal of the crop

External Trade and 
U.S. Dollar Balances 

Merchandise exports a) in May were $289.6 
million as compared with $275.6 million in 
May 1949. For the first five months of the year, 
a decline of $25 million, or 2 per cent was 
registered. Imports in May were up $40 mil- 
lion over May of last year, from $250.5 million 
to $290.2 million. In contrast to the decline 
in exports, imports show a slight increase over 

1949 for the first five months of the year, 
amounting to about $12 million, or 1 per cent. 
The most important change has been in the 
direction rather than the value of trade. 
Although exports to the United Kingdom and 
commonwealth countries have fallen off sharply 
relative to 1949, this trend has been almost 
offset by a rise in exports to the United States. 
Canadian trade with the United States and 
United Kingdom since 1947 is illustrated in 
the Chart on page vii. This chart shows the 
narrowing deficit on commodity trade with 
the United States, and the reduced surplus 
with the United Kingdom. 

For the month of May our total exports to 
all areas except the United States amounted 
to $112.4 million, a decline of 26 per cent from 
a year ago. Taking the first five months of 

1950 our exports to all areas other than the 
United States amounted to $419.4 million, a 
decline of 29 per cent from a year ago. For the 
first five months of 1950, exports to the United 

(1) Exports to all countries in June were $291.8 million, 
compared with $257.4 million in June 1949, according to 
figures released immediately prior to publication. 
Preliminary import figures indicate an increase of $32.3 
over June 1949, from $250.5 million to $282.8 million. 



Kingdom stood at $184.7 million, to other 
commonwealth countries at $81.6 million, and 
to other foreign countries excluding the United 
States at $153.1 million, representing declines 
of 33 per cent, 41 per cent and 16 per cent 
respectively from a year ago. 

Recent trade talks between British and Cana- 
dian officials indicate that purchase of Cana- 
dian iron ore, which fell to fractional propor- 
tions this year, will be resumed and that the 
United Kingdom will continue to provide a 
market for Canadian lumber and other wood 
products including newsprint. 

In contrast to our weakening export position 
with areas other than the United States our 
export to that country continue to show steady 
substantial increases. Export shipments in May 
stood at $177.2 million, an increase of $54.3 
million over the same month last year. For 
the first five months of 1950 the value of 
exports amounted to $736.9 million, a gain 
of $152 million or 26 per cent. Featured in 
this upward trend were increases in wood, 
wood products and paper, and animals and 
animal products. Wood, wood products and 
paper increased from $273.6 million for the 
first five months of 1949 to $361.9 million 
for the same period this year, while animal 
and animal products showed an increase of 
$22.8 million, for the same period (in both 
cases no allowance being made for re-exports). 
In view of the present international situation, 
it seems reasonable to expect a continuing 
high level of United States' demand for Cana- 
dian produce. 

Latest figures show Canadian reserves of 
gold and United States' dollars to be $1,255.4 
million at the end of June, compared with 
$976.9 million in June 1949, an increase of 
about 29 per cent.

^'New series. Unadjusted dollar values of manufacturers' new orders are substituted for the index formerly 
shown. The current revision has been carried back only to the beginning of 1946. It appears unlikely 
that satisfactory estimates can be obtained for the war years. Revised data for 1939-41 will be shown later.

Note: These figures have been revised in order that all industries and industry groups may coincide with the 
Standard Industrial Classification. In many cases, individual firms have been changed from one industry 
to another, corresponding with the new definitions of industries. For more detail on types of firms included 
together with revised monthly figures for 1948, see the December "Report on Inventories and Shipments 
by Manufacturing Industries". 
(1) Estimated inventories for all industries and inventories and shipments for selected industries.

(1) Monthly totals of 1948 are not equivalent to annual data due to receipt of additional statistics which cannot be 

allocated by months. 
<2) Excluding producers' interchange. 

Prior to 1946, exports include pigs, ingots, blooms, billets and rolling mill products. 
' Prior to 1946, imports include castings and iorgings and rolling mill products. Since 1946, they include, in 
addition to all other shapes, wire and wire rope. A substantial part of the imports appears after refinishing 
in total shipments. Production of primary iron and steel shapes from Canadian steel is equivalent to about 
72 percent of the total production of ingots.

(1) The coverage was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, and to 523 in January 1950, minor revision still 

being required in the table, due to the non-receipt of returns from a few small places. No account is 
taken of the building activity outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting 
of permits but a number of projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the 
statement of the applicant and considerable change may develop before the completion of the operation. 

(2) As of January 1950, Newfoundland is included.

(1) Annual results are from the Canadian Balance of International Payments and monthly totals as given in Trade 
of Canada. In the balance of payment figures trade statistics have been adjusted to bring them closer 
to the international exchange of goods with each country, by using payments data or other substitutes 
in the case of certain special groups of transactions where physical movements of goods do not reflect inter- 
national financial transaction, — e.g. — special shipments of munitions during the war, and the ware- 
housing of Canadian wheat outside of Canada. Mutual aid exports are represented by financial transac- 
tions which in some years are subject to revision. Non-commercial items have been deducted throughout. 

(2) Official holdings of Gold and U.S. dollars are given as of end of year and month in Statistical Summary of the 
Bank of Canada and Annual Report of Foreign Exchange Control Board. 

<3) Does not include proceeds of 100 million dollar loan floated by the Government of Canada in the United States 
in August 1949. *See footnote of page 96.

(1) The annual statistics prior to 1949 embrace all steam railways, while annual averages for 1949, and monthly 
data for the last two years refer to railways with annual operating revenues of $530,000 or over. 

< 2 > Operating income equals operating revenues less operating expenses adjusted for tax accruals and rent 
of equipment and joint facilities. l3l For the Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific, retroactive wage 
increases, totalling $29,085,087, paid in September 1948, were not included in that month's operating 
expenses. Payrolls as now reported monthly are according to the new wage scale.

Forecasting Private and Public Investment 



Estimates of the amount of money likely to 
be spent in the year ahead on construction and 
machinery and equipment have been published 
since 1946. The first publication was called 
"Capital, Repair and Maintenance Expend- 
itures of Business Enterprises in Canada" and 
the second, which was released in 1947 was 
called the "Forecast of 1947 Investment by 
Canadian Business". In these first two years 
business or private investment only was covered 
in the forecast. In 1948 the title was changed 
to "Private and Public Investment in Canada, 
Outlook 1948". In March of that year for the 
first time statistics were published on govern- 
ment or public, as well as private expenditures. 
The reports for 1949 and 1950 have retained the 
same title. 

The work on the investment forecasts was 
initiated in the Economic Research Branch of 
the Department of Reconstruction and Supply 
with the actual surveys being undertaken by 
the Dominion Bureau of Statistics and the 



preparation of the text and final report by the 
Economic Research Branch. This arrangement 
continued through 1949 by which time the 
Economic Research Branch of the Department 
of Reconstruction and Supply had been at- 
tached to the Department of Trade and Com- 
merce. In 1950 primary responsibility for the 
investment forecast was transferred to the 
Dominion Bureau of Statistics. 

The Purpose of the Investment 
Forecast 

The amount of money spent on new con- 
struction and machinery and equipment is 
one of the more important determinants of 
the levels of income and employment in 
Canada as a whole. It is, of course, not the only 
determinant of these levels. Exports, consumer 
and government expenditures, and investment 
in inventories likewise create income and 
employment. All these components must be 
given close attention by any person or group

concerned with the interpretation of current or 
foreseeable economic trends. 

There are, however, a number of reasons for 
giving special attention to the levels of public 
and private investment in construction and 
machinery and equipment. One of the most 
important is the extent to which outlays of 
this nature have varied in the past, tending to 
accentuate the business booms and depressions. 
(See Chart on previous page). 

Considerable thought has been given in re- 
cent years to the possibility of partially offsetting 
the variations in the private sector through 
more rigid control of government capital out- 
lays. There are, of course, serious obstacles to 
implementing such a policy, particularly when 
business is on the up-swing and heavy expend- 
itures for plant, equipment and housing neces- 
sitate government outlays for schools, hospi- 
tals, administrative buildings, roads, sewers 
and sidewalks, etc. On the other hand, when 
private investment is declining it is reasonable 
to expect that a contribution towards main- 
taining total investment levels and business 
activity generally might be made through 
increased capital outlays by the public or 
government sector. Implementation of meas- 
ures such as this to counteract declines in 
employment and income require advance plan- 
ning and consequently it is essential to have 
advance knowledge of intended investment on 
which judgments may be based. 

Another important reason for collecting 
information on investment intentions is that 
such data reflect to a considerable degree the 
outlook of management on future business 
prospects. In planning new investment, es- 
pecially durable investments like new factories 
or machines, management tries to estimate 
the probable returns over the years ahead. This 
it does by taking account of export prospects, 
home consumption, costs, taxes, and all the 
other conditions that affect present and pro- 
spective profits, and that therefore determine 
whether a given piece of new investment is 
likely to be worthwhile. Since it is much more 
difficult to gauge business conditions for a 
number of years ahead than for the near future, 
it seems highly probable that decisions to invest 
are based largely on profits in the immediate 
past, on current conditions and on the short- 
run outlook. Information of this type, regard- 
ing the future, is extremely valuable to both 



business and government in planning effective 
measures to meet the conditions which may 
arise. Construction companies and suppliers 
of machinery and equipment receive a general 
indication of the volume of business they may 
expect and are able to plan accordingly. Gov- 
ernments, being better informed of the plans 
and expectations of business, are able to take 
this into account in policy formulation. 

The Type of Expenditures Given 
in the Investment Reports 

Broadly speaking, the expenditures given 
in the investment outlook are those made for 
the purchase and repair of structures and 
machinery and equipment used either to 
produce goods or to provide services — in es- 
sence, the expenditures made on the tools 
required for production. 

The nature of the tools or facilities for which 
these expenditures are made varies from one 
sector of the economy to another. In the 
manufacturing industry they cover the costs 
of purchasing and installing machinery and 
equipment and the construction costs of 
essential buildings. Storage space, workmen's 
tools, steam shovels and cranes represent some 
of the main expenditures of the construction 
industry. Typical government expenditures 
consist of the building costs of post offices and 
other government buildings, office furniture 
and machinery, and the costs of facilities like 
roads and highways, sidewalks, filtration plants, 
water systems, wharves and bridges. Expendi- 
tures of institutions are made up of the costs 
of building and equipment normally used by 
our hospitals, schools, universities and churches. 
In the mining industry such outlays include 
all development costs as well as the cost of 
machinery and equipment. 

Housing is also included, although a large 
part of it is not business capital. Nevertheless 
it forms a large proportion of construction 
expenditures and has cyclical fluctuations 
similar to those which characterize business, 
institutional and government capital expendi- 
tures. 

Although both capital and repair and main- 
tenance expenditures are asked for in the 
surveys on which the investment outlook is 
based, the main emphasis of the report is on 
capital or new investment. Repair and main- 



u 



tenance outlays are properly considered as 
current and not capital charges and conse- 
quently are given separately. They are included 
in the investment reports principally because 
of their similarity in some respects to capital 
expenditures and also because they draw on 
virtually the same pool of labour and materials. 
Normally they do not fluctuate to the same 
extent nor are they as representative of the 
business outlook. 

Capital expenditures are defined to include 
the cost of procuring, constructing and install- 
ing new durable plant and machinery, whether 
for replacement of worn out or obsolete assets 
or as additions to existing assets. Included are 
purchases from persons outside the business, 
together with the value of work on capital 
assets undertaken by business with its own 
working force. Gross outlay is asked for on the 
questionnaires used with no deduction for 
scrap or trade-in value of old assets. Excluded 
are expenditures made for the purchase of 
previously existing buildings and other struc- 
tures, for used machinery and equipment, and 
for land, since outlay of this type involves only 
the transfer of property and not the production 
of a capital asset. 

Repair and maintenance expenditures rep- 
resent the outlay made to maintain the 
existing stock of durable physical assets in a 
normal state of repair. 

Capital expenditures and repair and main- 
tenance expenditures are each divided into 
construction and machinery and equipment. 
Construction expenditures include engineering, 
as well as building construction. For example, 
in the utilities, construction is largely en- 
gineering construction, such as that on trans- 
mission, communication and oil pipe lines, 
railway road beds, dams and bridges. Govern- 
ment construction figures include expenditures 
on highways, sewers, airfields, sidewalks, and 
other miscellaneous engineering construction. 

Coverage 

All segments of the economy are covered in 
the Investment Reports. The largest portion 
of the expenditures are estimated from surveys 
of some 18,000 business establishments of all 
kinds, including mines, manufacturing plants, 
utilities, retail stores, banks, wholesale estab- 
lishments, etc. Surveys are also made of 



housing, institutions and governments. The 
remaining portions of the total capital expendi- 
ture estimate, covering agriculture and the 
primary part of the fishing industry, independ- 
ent stores, real estate operators, and some of 
the commercial services group, are not derived 
from direct surveys and can only be considered 
as informed approximations. However, such 
estimates account for only about 15 per cent 
of the total given in the investment outlook. 

Quality of Estimates 

In considering the accuracy or correctness 
of any analysis of investment intentions, two 
separate factors should be kept in mind. 
First, it is necessary to consider the extent to 
which investment plans are formulated in 
advance. Second, consideration ought to be 
given to the comparison of anticipated invest- 
ment expenditures with the actual investment 
statistics once they are available for the period 
in question. 

So far as the first point is concerned, it should 
be noted that it is not always easy to obtain 
reliable data on the future plans of business 
firms. Some firms do not decide upon their 
complete investment programme at the begin- 
ning of the year and are unable to state their 
intentions precisely. Generally, however, 
capital expenditures, particularly those on 
structures and large installations need previous 
planning and preparation and most firms are 
able to give a good estimate of expected outlay. 
In addition, the seasonal character of construc- 
tion in Canada frequently means that early 
decisions must be made regarding the year's 
plans. 

The extent to which the forecast is borne out 
in fact, though a measure of its practical worth, 
is not necessarily a good test of the ability of 
individuals to state their intentions. The 
plans of business may be frustrated or changed 
for many reasons. Modifications of the general 
business outlook, changing price trends, and 
shortages of some materials and skilled labour 
may result in postponement or other changes 
in investment plans. Individual businesses 
have different planning periods and in some 
cases plans are kept flexible as a matter of 
policy. There is a possibility, however, that 
there is a characteristic upward or downward 
bias in the forecast of certain individual firms. 
Changing circumstances from year to year 



in 



make it difficult to ascertain whether or not 
this results in any general bias toward under- 
statement or overstatement. 

It is of interest to see how accurately the 

1949 investment programme was predicted 
early in that year. This is illustrated in the 
table below, based on Table 36, p. 46 of The 

1950 Outlook. It appears that the overall total 
of actual expenditures in 1949 was 3.4 per cent 
higher than forecast. Within this total, busi- 
ness expenditures were about 4 per cent above 
the forecast, and other expenditures about 3 
per cent above. All the components of the 
business groups showed some deviation from 
the original forecast. In primary industries, 
mining expenditures were found to have been 
moderately underestimated. Manufacturing 
expenditures were slightly lower than forecast. 
The utilities group exceeded the forecast main- 



ly because progress in electric power develop- 
ment was greater than anticipated. In other 
expenditures, housing accounted for the largest 
part of the 3 per cent excess. Government work 
also went forward more rapidly than anti- 
cipated. A reduction in hospital expenditures 
accounted for most of the overestimate in the 
institutions group. It may have been that the 
forecast in some instances anticipated funds 
or appropriations which were not forthcoming 
later in the year. 

In considering these comparisons, it should 
be kept in mind that the 1949 preliminary 
actual figures are still subject to further 
revision as more information becomes available. 
However, these revisions do not as a rule affect 
the overall totals appreciably although there 
are sometimes significant changes within 
groups.

Current Economic Conditions 



Recent economic indicators show that there 
has been little change in the general high level 
of activity as reported in last month's Cana- 
dian Statistical Review. Industrial production 
continued at a high level in June with the index 
showing an advance of 2 per cent over the 
previous month and 5.6 per cent over June 
1949. Total value of retail trade increased by 
7.9 per cent over June of last year and was 5.3 
per cent higher than the previous month. 
Department store sales for the four weeks 
ending August 12 have averaged 14 per cent 
above the same weekly periods of last year. 
Labour income in May was 2.7 per cent higher 
than the April estimate of $642 million, and 
6 per cent above May 1949. 

A preliminary statement of our foreign trade 
for June reveals a continuation of the change 
in direction of trade relative to last year. 
Exports to the United Kingdom and Common- 
wealth countries declined by 21 per cent, 
compared with June 1949, while exports to 
the United States increased by 56 per cent. 
On the other hand, imports from the United 
Kingdom and Commonwealth countries in- 
creased by 30 per cent. Imports from the 
United States increased by approximately 7 
per cent. 

Attention is focused at present on the pos- 
sible implications for the Canadian economy 
of heavy rearmament in the United States 
and the United Kingdom, and of our own in- 
creased defence programme and military com- 
mitments as a member of the United Nations 
and under the Atlantic Pact. In the United 
States, an increase in the defence budget of 
$14.5 billion has been recommended, and 
President Truman has asked for authority to 
establish priorities for defence plants, insure 
the allocation and requisition of scarce ma- 
terials, curb consumer credit, and increase 
taxes. It has been indicated by United States' 
officials that defence orders will be placed in 
Canada, but the extent of these is not yet known. 

It may be some time before these develop- 
ments are fully reflected in the statistical data. 
However, in recent weeks the price of many 
commodities has advanced sharply. 



At the time of writing, the country is faced 
with a nation-wide railway strike which, if 
continued, will bring about severe economic 
dislocation. Industrial shutdowns have al- 
ready commenced and serious agricultural 
losses may be sustained on perishable fruit 
and vegetable crops now coming on the market. 

Commodity Prices 

The immediate effects of the Korean war 
are, of course, being felt in a rise in commodity 
prices both in ths country and in the United 
States. These increases come at a time when 
the Canadian wholesale price index has shown 
a steady advance since the beginning of the 
year. Between May and June, the index ad- 
vanced by approximately 2 per cent to 165.0 
(1926 = 100). Substantial increases were re- 
gistered for zinc and its products, and for 
brass, copper and products, which rose by 20.4 
per cent and 11.9 per cent respectively. Raw 
wool advanced 11.3 per cent, live stock 7.5 per 
cent, fresh meat 6.7 per cent, lumber and tim- 
ber 6.1 per cent and scrap iron and steel 6.1 
per cent. These advances are for the month 
ending June 15, and do not reflect increases 
which have taken place since hostilities com- 
menced in Korea on June 25. 

In the seven weeks between June 22 and 
August 10, further substantial increases were 
registered in the price of many basic commod- 
ities. Official indexes covering this period are 
not yet available, but an analysis of prices of 
selected commodities indicates that a sharp 
upward movement has taken place and that 
the group of imported commodities has re- 
gistered the largest gains. In the seven weeks 
for which figures are available, raw natural 
rubber advanced by 77 per cent to 55 cents per 
lb. and tin ingots advanced by 34 per cent to 
$1.16 per lb. Imported vegetable oils rose 
sharply — peanut oil, by 46 per cent and co- 
coanut oil by 24 per cent. Other substantial 
advances were: raw cotton, 11 per cent; raw 
sugar, 7 per cent; and raw wool, 7 percent. 

Domestic commodities too have shared in 
the general advance. Lard increased by 67 
per cent, tallow by 55 per cent and soya bean

oil by 12 per cent. Steers increased by 5 per 
cent and hides by 17 per cent. 

These increases reflect something more than 
the normal pressure of demand resulting from 
a high domestic level of industrial activity and 
consumption. The Korean war and consequent 
fear of shortages has introduced a speculative 
element into the situation. 

Stock Market Prices 

Stock market prices, too, have reacted sharply 
to the outbreak of war in Korea. Weekly stock 
price indexes (1935-39 = 100) indicate that the 
stock market was fairly stable during the first 
quarter of 1950, but that a general rise in 
prices began to make itself felt in the second 
quarter of the year for all groups except golds. 

During the week ending June 29, the week 
in which hostilities commenced in Korea, all 
groups declined sharply. This downward 
movement continued until the third week in 
July, when a general recovery began to take 
place. Between June 22 and July 13, the weekly 
index of industrial stocks declined from 129.4 
to 114.0; utilities dropped from 139.0 to 122.9; 
banks, from 150.5 to 144.4; golds from 71.5 to 
54.8; and base metals from 134.4 to 120.3. 

Up to August 17, only industrials and base 
metals had recovered to a point exceeding their 
June 22 levels. The indexes for these two groups 
were 133.5 and 138.3 on that date. All other 
groups had shown a fairly steady increase, 
with the exception of golds which stood at 60.2 
on August 17 as compared with 60.0 on July 
20. The weekly indexes for utilities and banks 
on August 17 were 134.9 and 146.3, respectively. 

Beef Situation 

Exports to the United States of dressed beef 
and veal were 25 per cent higher during the 
first six months of 1950 than for the same 
period a year ago. Average monthly cold 
storage holdings of beef in Canada have de- 
clined from 27.8 million pounds in the first 
six months of 1949 to 15.9 million pounds in 
1950, or by 43 per cent. Exports of live cattle 
to all countries in the first six months of the 
year were 61 per cent above the same period 
a year ago. The decline in cold storage holdings 
of beef in Canada and the increase in exports 



of live cattle is illustrated graphically in the 
chart on page vi. 

These figures reflect the present heavy de- 
mand for Canadian beef which has resulted in 
higher prices. Since January 1947 steer prices 
in Canada have approximately doubled. The 
chart on page vi shows how the price of steers 
in Canada has moved in relation to the Ameri- 
can price. It is interesting to note that in 1947 
American steer prices were very nearly double 
Canadian prices, but that early in 1948, the 
Canadian price began to climb rapidly as 
farmers restricted marketings in anticipation 
of the removal of the embargo on exports of 
beef and cattle to the United States. Toward 
the end of 1948 and early in 1949, the Ameri- 
can price dropped sharply as the effects of the 
recession began to be felt in that country. 
Despite this sharp decline, however, the United 
States price remained well above the Canadian 
price, which dropped much less severely. Since 
the beginning of 1950 Canadian steer prices 
have risen steadily, even though prices across 
the border showed a substantial decline during 
the first quarter of the year. 

According to an analysis by the Department 
of Agriculture/ 1 ' these high prices are likely 
to prevail for some time. There are some in- 
dications that excessively heavy marketings of 
heifer stock in 1950 may result in an im- 
pairment of Canada's productive capacity. 
In addition it is stated that the cattle popula- 
tion in Canada has been declining during the 
past few years and that production, after an 
initial lag, may also decline. There is therefore 
little hope of an improvement in the supply 
of beef in Canada in the near future. 



The Cost-of -Living in June 

The Canadian cost-of-living index advanced 
a further 2.1 points between June 1 and July 
3 to a new high of 167.5. As noted above this 
figure does not, for the most part, reflect price 
increases which have taken place as a result 
of the international situation. Higher food 
prices accounted for most of the increase but 
rents were also a contributing factor. The 
food subindex rose sharply from 209.0 to 214.3, 
largely as a result of increases in meat, eggs, 
and potatoes. A considerable portion of the

Vll 



price rise in these items was seasonal, partic- 
ularly in eggs, which advanced 10.4c per dozen 
and potatoes which rose 8.6c per 10 pounds. 

August Crop Estimates 

Canada's wheat crop was forecast at 544 
million bushels in the first estimate of 1950 
production released by the Dominion Bureau 
of Statistics on August 15. It is too early to 
assess the effect of frosts reported since the 
estimate, and further the late harvest date 
may bring additional damage. However if the 
above estimate is realized, this will be the 
third largest crop in the country's history, 
49 per cent above the five year 1945-49 average 
of 366 million bushels and exceeded only in 
the years 1928 and 1942. Although the 27 
million acres seeded to wheat in Canada this 
year is below the record 1940 level of 28.7 mil- 
lion acres, the average yield per acre of 20.1 
bushels is well above the long-time average 
of 16 bushels per acre. 

Oats production is estimated at 433 million 
bushels, 36 per cent above the 1949 level and 27 
per cent above the 1945-49 average. All prov- 



inces shared in the increase over last year 
except Nova Scotia and British Columbia. 

The barley crop is forecast at 184 million 
bushels, 50 per cent greater than in 1949 and 
27 per cent above the 1945-49 average. Produc- 
tion in Nova Scotia is expected to be lower 
than last year, but all other provinces share in 
the increase. 

Rye production is placed at 15.4 million 
bushels, a gain of 54 per cent over 1949 despite 
a slightly lower acreage. The flax crop is 
estimated at 5.2 million bushels, 126 per cent 
above 1949 but substantially below the 1945-49 
average of 9.3 million. Most of the increase 
over 1949 is in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. 

The current outlook is therefore for a very 
large harvest this fall. It should be noted, 
however, that these yield estimates may be 
subject to significant revisions in the light of 
subsequent harvesting conditions. 

The wheat carry-over at July 31 was the 
largest in the past four years, amounting to 
113.2 million bushels. Stocks of rye and oats, 
however, were below last year's levels, amount- 
ing to 6.6 million and 44.3 million bushels, 
respectively.

Note: These figures have been revised in order that all industries and industry groups may coincide with the 
Standard Industrial Classification. In many cases, individual firms have been changed from one industry 
to another, corresponding with the new definitions of industries. For more detail on types of firms included 
together with revised monthly figures for 1948, see the December "Report on Inventories and Shipments 
by Manufacturing Industries".

"'Monthly totals of 1948 are not equivalent to annual data due to receipt of additional statistics which cannot be 
allocated by months. 
'Excluding producers' interchange. 

Prior to 1946, exports include pigs, ingots, blooms, billets and rolling mill products. 

Prior to 1946, imports include castings and forgings and rolling mill products. Since 1946, they include, in 
addition to all other shapes, wire and wire rope. A substantial part of the imports appears after refinishing 
in total shipments. Production of primary iron and steel shapes from Canadian steel is equivalent to about 
72 percent of the total production of ingots.

(1 > The coverage was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, and to 523 in January 1950, minor revision still 
being required in the table, due to the non-receipt of returns from a few small places. No account is 
taken of the building activity outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting 
of permits but a number of projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the 
statement of the applicant and considerable change may develop before the completion of the operation. 

(2) As of January 1950, Newfoundland is included.

(1, Annual results are from the Canadian Balance of International Payments and monthly totals as given in Trade 
of Canada. In the balance of payment figures trade statistics have been adjusted to bring them closer 
to the international exchange of goods with each country, by using payments data or other substitutes 
in the case of certain special groups of transactions where physical movements of goods do not reflect inter- 
national financial transaction, — e.g. — special shipments of munitions during the war, and the ware- 
housing of Canadian wheat outside of Canada. Mutual aid exports are represented by financial transac- 
tions which in some years are subject to revision. Non-commercial items have been deducted throughout. 

< 2, Oftirial holdings of Gold and U.S. dollars are given as of end of year and month in Statistical Summary of the 
Bank of Canada and Annual Report of Foreign Exchange Control Board. 

'"Does not include proceeds of 100 million dollar loan floated by the Government of Canada in the United States 
in August 1949. *See footnote of page 96.

Beginning with April 1950 and the corresponding month of 1949 Newfoundland is included. 
(1) The annual statistics prior to 1949 embrace all steam railways, while annual averages for 1949, and monthly 

data for the last two years refer to railways with annual operating revenues of $500,000 or over. 
(21 Operating income equals operating revenues less operating expenses adjusted for tax accruals and rent 
of equipment and joint facilities. l3l For the Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific, retroactive wage 
increases, totalling $29,085,087, paid in September 1948, were not included in that month's operating 
expenses. Payrolls as now reported monthly are according to the new wage scale.

How Industry Returns Are Made 
into Published Reports 



When the Bureau was set up in 1918 its in- 
ternal operations were not as complex as they 
are now. Little tabulating equipment was 
available for other than census work. To produce 
industry statistics a staff of clerks was turned 
loose on the schedules sent in by reporting 
concerns and sooner or later totals were ob- 
tained and printed. A considerable amount 
of skill was developed by these early statistical 
workers in adding figures and making hand 
tallies on worksheets. 

As time went on several developments made 
a change in methods unavoidable. One of 
these is the higher price of labour, which affects 
the Bureau in the same way as business. A 
second is the increased efficiency and adapta- 
bility of available machines. A third is the need 
for faster release of results, as statistical data 
come to be demanded for policy decisions in 
business. Further, more elaborate information 
is demanded today by the users of DBS mate- 
rial; for example, they do not wish to know 
merely the total number of employees in the 
country, but how many concerns have under 
5, how many 5 to 10 employees, and so on. It is 
not sufficient to state merely that there are so 
many French speaking or so many English 
speaking people in each part of the country, 
but these groups must be subdivided according 
to age, occupation, sex, and so forth. Wherever 
such cross-classifications are required the 
compilation by hand tally becomes time con- 
suming and costly. 

An organization has therefore been estab- 
lished in the Bureau to take advantage of every 
possible benefit to be obtained from mechanical 
devices; it is known as the Mechanical Tabula- 
tion Division and was set up three years ago. 
It examines all new types of machines which 
come on the market, — often when they are 
still in the planning stage, — to find whether 
they can help better to attain the goals of 
speed, accuracy and economy. The Division 
makes use of as wide a range of equipment as 
is to be found in Canada, and one of the most 
diverse on the Continent. 



At one time, when no suitable equipment 
could be bought, the Bureau invented and 
built its own machines, which were most 
ingenious. Some operated by electricity, others 
on a rather original compressed air principle. 
The Bureau is now satisfied, however, that its 
own machines have been outstripped by com- 
mercial ones which can be obtained more 
cheaply than they can be custom built and 
maintained. 

The machines in the Bureau are designed to 
do many of the jobs formerly done manually 
by clerks. The process is one of feeding data 
into the machine and then instructing the 
machine what to do. A considerable portion 
of DBS work uses punched cards as the me- 
dium for putting the data into the machine. 
A standard punch card is slightly larger than 
a dollar bill and it is possible to have a hole in 
any one of approximately 1,000 different posi- 
tions on the card. Any one of these positions 
may be punched and an almost endless number 
of different arrangements is possible. Ordi- 
narily it is convenient to divide off "fields" of 
up to five or six columns on the card, each 
serving to transcribe some fact taken from a 
report. If the fact is a number it can be trans- 
ferred to the punch card with the use of one 
column for each digit of the number. If it is a 
non-numerical characteristic, such as occupa- 
tion or language spoken it must be coded in 
order to be conveniently recorded in punch 
positions. 

To introduce the data on the punch cards 
into the machine, the cards are run through it 
one at a time and an electrical impulse is allow- 
ed to pass whenever a hole appears. The machine 
is instructed by means of a control panel or 
switches how to interpret these impulses and 
what to do with them. 

One machine sorts cards into groups i.e. all 
those punched in the 1 position in the column 
being dealt with, are piled in one stack, those 
punched in the 2 position in a second stack, and 
so on. Another machine adds the figures 
punched in particular fields from each card 



i 



much as an adding machine would do. A 
third counts the number of cards punched for 
any particular characteristic, such as occupa- 
tion "carpenter". These functions of first 
reading the card and then sorting, adding and 
counting are essentially carried out by com- 
binations of relays. All that the machine 
operator needs to know (the designer of course 
must know more) is that a relay is a switch 
capable of being turned on (that is, closed) 
by a very small electrical current, and when 
closed is able to route a heavy current to any 
counter, sorting mechanism, or type bar, 
according to the instruction which the machine 
has been initially given. The small electrical 
current is that which passes through the 
punched position, constituting the reading of 
the card by the machine. 

Electronic equipment uses tubes similar to 
those in a radio in the place of relays; the 
tubes do the same work but take far less time. 
To reduce the time for a single switching of 
current to 1/1,000,000 second when it is already 
down to 1/1,000 may not seem an important 
matter, but when a very great number of 
switches have to be turned on and off it pays to 
have them in the form of tubes rather than 
relays. 

Relays or tubes can be wired together to 
carry out operations comparable in complexity 
with those assigned to human beings, and it is 
probably to convey this fact that machines 
working essentially by relay networks have 
been described as mechanical brains. One of 
the more elaborate uses of such networks of 
relays in the Bureau is the work known as 
editing. The combination of relays examines 
punch cards passing through it to find cases 
where the various entries are inconsistent, — 
where, for example, a person has been recorded 
as having the occupation "doctor" despite 
the fact that his age is only 15. Any rule which 
can be stated to an editing clerk can be wired 
into the machine and it will apply the rule 
every time without fatigue. A card passes 
through the machine in 1/9 of a second and in 
this time may be examined for 30 or 40 different 
inconsistencies. Those which are consistent 
and those inconsistent are placed in separate 
stacks. 

A typical application of punch card tabula- 
ting methods is that from which the Bureau 
produces its monthly report on Import Statis- 
tics. 



From Customs officials the Bureau receives 
daily declarations of all commodities which 
have been imported from foreign countries. 
For tabulation purposes such items as port, 
country and type of commodity are first 
converted into a convenient numerical code. 
Items such as quantity, value and duty are 
used in their reported form. 

When this information has been coded it is 
passed to the Mechanical Tabulation Division 
where the coded and quantitative information 
is punched into standard punch cards — one 
card for each commodity declared by the im- 
porter. In a typical month 275,000 import 
cards are so prepared. 

After the month end close-off, a tabulation 
is produced which enables a single card to be 
punched for the total of each commodity 
imported from a given country. This reduces 
the number of punch cards to approximately 
5,000 Import Summary cards. 

The Import Summary cards are then merged 
with similar cards for the preceding months 
of the calendar year. All of these cards are 
then passed through a tabulating machine 
which is wired to distinguish between cards 
carrying information for the current month 
and those carrying information for the preced- 
ing months. For each type of commodity and 
country it is therefore able to print in one 
operation totals for the current month and 
cumulative totals for the year to date. 

These tabulation sheets with appropriate 
headings inserted are then photographed and 
reproduced in their final form by an offset 
printing unit. There is thus no possibility of 
an error being made between the machine 
results and the published report. 

In the DBS annual Census of Industry the 
punch card has fields for the number of wage 
and salary workers in the plant, the cost of 
materials and fuel used, the value of products 
made, and so on. These cards are punched by 
operators from the schedules and the punch 
cards are sorted according to industry. Each 
industry is then fed through tabulating ma- 
chines which produce the main published 
results. Since the main delay in the process 
of tabulation arises because some concerns 
delay reporting their operations far beyond the 
end of the period to which they refer, it has 
become desirable in recent years to secure a 
preliminary figure. This year this is being 



n 



obtained by punching all the schedules which 
are in the office for 1949 about mid- 1950, and 
using this partial deck of cards to pull from the 
complete deck for 1948 a matching set, i.e. the 
cards for all establishments that have reported 
for 1949. This again is done by an assemblage 
of relays known as a collator. The matching 
sets for 1949 and 1948 can then be added on a 
tabulator and the totals compared to give the 
per cent change between the two years. 

The tabulation of the results of the quarterly 
Labour Force Surveys is slightly more com- 
plicated since estimates for the whole country 
must be made from returns sent in by enu- 
merators who have visited about 30,000 rep- 
resentative households. The data received from 
these households is adequate to yield accurate 
national and regional estimates and at the 
same time the job is small enough to permit 
release of results within six or eight weeks 
from the start of enumeration. 

The preparation of the punch cards for the 
Labour Force Survey tabulations is done me- 
chanically. The enumerator in the field records 
the information on a special card. Instead of 
turning these cards over to a staff of punching 
clerks, they are passed through a machine 
capable of reading the marks made by the 
enumerator. Once again the principle of the 
relay is applied. A mark on the original card 
is transformed into a small electrical current, 
which operates the relay, which in turn oper- 
ates the punching mechanism. This machine 
can produce a card completely punched in 
about one second. 

The tabulation job is essentially one of 
counting the number of persons, each rep- 
resented by a card, in various categories or 
classifications and multiplying the results of 
these counts by a factor. The counting is done 
entirely by a machine which can^examine*the 



cards at the rate of almost 10 per second and 
can count simultaneously the cards which 
fulfill up to 60 different qualifications. 

Machines using punch cards are of course 
only one means of securing statistical results 
and a means not to be preferred when some 
other more convenient one is at hand. For 
example, a pegboard is most efficient for some 
jobs. A group of schedules to be added are 
overlapped on a frame in such a way that the 
several schedules become in effect a single 
large sheet on which the figures can be added 
vertically and horizontally as easily as though 
they were recorded on a ledger sheet. Schedules 
to be tabulated in this way must of course 
be designed for use on a pegboard and printed 
in proper format. There are other cases where 
adding machines, either printing on tapes or 
showing totals in dials are the most convenient 
method, — especially for tasks where no cross 
classification is required. Where an elaborate 
calculation involving much multiplication is 
necessary it may be done by means of a multi- 
plying punch, but if the procedure is compli- 
cated and to be repeated only a few times the 
greater set-up time, i.e. the work of instructing 
a machine on how to do it rather than instruct- 
ing a clerk, is not justified. 

This is but a brief outline of some of the 
many ways in which reports are prepared in 
the Bureau. The machines now in use do many 
complicated jobs which, though not impossible 
for human statistical workers, are impractic- 
able because of the time they would take. 
Mechanical aids are constantly being developed, 
aimed chiefly at accelerating the compilation 
process so that more current data may be 
available in business and government circles. 
The field is one of great possibilities, limited 
only by the imagination of the research worker 
and the ingenuity of the engineer.

Current Economic Conditions 



Analysis of economic conditions, based on 
latest available statistics, must be made in 
the perspective of events which caused an 
emergency session of Parliament to convene 
on August 29. Two issues prompted immediate 
parliamentary action. Of top priority, was the 
cross-country railway strike which threatened 
the country with widespread economic dis- 
location. Settlement came on August 30, the 
ninth day of the strike, when Parliament 
approved a bill to provide for the resumption 
of operations of the railroads. Secondly, and 
of no less importance, was the question of 
defence exigencies which had emerged follow- 
ing the outbreak of war in Korea. On this 
issue Parliament approved new defence ap- 
propriations and commitment authority to 
the amount of $859 million. This, when added 
to the defence budget already voted at the 
regular session which ended in June, provided 
a total of approximately $1,400 million both 
for home defence and for the partial fulfillment 
of Canada's commitments as a member of 
the United Nations, and under the Atlantic 
Pact. The full amount will not be spent 
during the current fiscal year, but the in- 
creased military expenditures which will take 
place will intensify the pressures on prices 
already at work in an economy operating close 
to capacity. 

To some extent, this inflationary pressure 
may be mitigated by higher revenues made 
necessary by the new defence requirements. 
In this connection the following tax revisions 
were approved: an increase of corporation 
income taxes to 15% from 10% on the first 
$10,000, and to 38% from 33% on the remainder, 
retroactive to September 1, 1950; a tax of 30% 
on candy, chewing gum, and soft drinks; an 
increase in excise taxes to 15% from the original 
10% on motor cars, tires, and tubes; an in- 
crease in liquor taxes to $12 from $11 per proof 
gallon; an increase in taxes on malt used in 
beer to 21c from 16c per pound; a tax of 50c 
per pound on carbonic acid; an excise tax of 
15% on a variety of electrical household ap- 
pliances (excluding stoves, washing machines 
and refrigerators); and an excise taxe of 15% 
on a variety of semi-luxury goods. These 



revisions, approved on September 7, 1950, and 
made effective immediately, are expected to 
yield $58.9 million for the year ending March 
31, 1951, and $189.5 million over a full year. By 
the end of the fiscal year 1950-1951, total reve- 
nues are expected to reach $2,669 million and 
total expenditures $2,654 million, leaving a 
surplus of $15 million. 

A policy of comprehensive direct controls 
involving over-all price ceilings and the re- 
introduction of subsidies is not proposed at the 
present time. There is an apparent consensus, 
however, that in addition to financing govern- 
ment expenditures on a "pay as you go" basis, 
other measures are called for to deal with 
existing pressures on prices, as evidenced by 
the announcement of the Finance Minister 
on September 7th. Public works construction 
will be limited and federal farm improvement 
loans will be reduced. In addition, measures 
to limit the use of consumer credit will be 
adopted. Steps have been taken by Central 
Mortgage and Housing Corporation to limit 
the lending value on new houses built under 
the National Housing Act, by increasing down 
payments to match rising costs. 

In addition to these vital questions, recent 
government decisions regarding import con- 
trols on United States goods are worthy of 
note here. According to an announcement 
by the government on August 31, controls 
governing the importation of a substantial 
number of commodities under the Emergency 
Exchange Conservation Act will be relaxed on 
October 1, 1950. These relaxations involve 
items on the prohibited list, the quota list, 
and the capital goods list. The principal items 
removed from the prohibited list include many 
pulp and paper products, office machinery 
and appliances, and passenger automobile 
tires. Items hitherto on the quota list and now 
unrestricted include textile fabrics, soaps, 
polishes, glassware, and cooking and heating 
equipment. On the capital goods list, forty- 
five of the current ninety-five items are re- 
moved from import control. This advance 
toward greater freedom of trade is made pos- 
sible by our improved United States dollar 
position.

General Economic Activity 

The main economic indicators point to a 
continued upward movement. The index of 
industrial production (1935-1939 = 100) was 203.2 
for July compared with 205.3 for June. This rep- 
resents a slight seasonal drop, but comparison 
with declines for the same period in previous 
years indicates a rising trend in industrial ac- 
tivity. Whereas the index fell by approximately 
1% from June to July this year, it fell by 6% in 
1949 and by 3% in 1948 during the same period. 
Moreover, the decline here noted is presumably 
due to firms curtailing operations or closing 
down completely during the holiday season. 
It should also be noted that it is still early to 
make the complete seasonal adjustment for 
this relatively recent development. Once com- 
plete compensation is made the direction of 
the index may be reversed. 

Employment in the major industrial divi- 
sions showed further increases at the beginning 
of July, according to estimates made by the 
Dominion Bureau of Statistics. The index of 
employment in the eight leading industries 
(1941 = 100) stood at 132.2 on July 1, the highest 
mark on record for that date. This represents 
an increase of 3.6 points over June and 1.9 
points over July, 1949. The heightened activity 
was fairly general, with marked improvement 
in logging, building construction, and manu- 
facturing. The index of employment in log- 
ging was 123.2 in July, a rise of about 27% over 
June and of 1% over July 1949; the index in 
building construction stood at 186.2, 7% above 
last month and 6% above July last year; and 
in manufacturing the index was 123.4 in July, 
2% above last month and approximately the 
same as July, 1949. It should be noted that 
employees on holidays are considered as em- 
ployed for purposes of these statistics. Further 
indication of the improvement in the em- 
ployment situation is given by the decline in 
the number of claimants on live unemployment 
insurance registers. In July the number stood 
at 92,520 compared with 109,433 in June and 
79,902 in July, 1949. 

Estimates of residential construction for the 
first half of 1950 are now available. The latest 
figures show that 35,968 new dwelling units 
were completed by mid-year 1950, with 63,634 
units under construction. Compared with 
estimates at mid-year 1949, the number of 
completions fell by 3,758 while the number 
under construction increased by 6,847. With 



the large number of units under construction 
at mid-year and a rise in residential construc- 
tion awards in July, compared with last month 
and July, 1949 (Building Reporter, Volume 31, 
Aug. 1950), it is likely that the number of 
completions for the year will equal if not 
exceed the number in 1949*. (See Chart on 
Trends in Construction). 

Canada's production of motor vehicles is 
rapidly expanding. In July factory shipments 
numbered 40,131 units. While this represents 
a slight seasonal decline from the previous 
month, the increase over July, 1949 was of the 
magnitude of 14,748 units, or 58%. Also, the 
cumulative total for the first seven months 
of the year amounted to 231,896 units, the 
highest number on record and a gain of 40% 
over the corresponding period last year. Pas- 
senger cars accounted for the larger propor- 
tion of this gain. 

Consumer spending remained high in July. 
Retail store sales for the month were valued 
at $707 million, a seasonal decline of about 3% 
from June 1950, but a rise of over 6% over July 
1949. If the influence of price increases is 
removed from the July sales figure, there 
remains an increase in the quantity of retail 
sales of approximately 4 per cent. The index 
of wholesale sales also went up. It was 325.8 
in June compared with 321.5 in May 1950 and 
310.6 in June last year. 

Labour income for Canada was estimated at 
$683 million for the month of June. This 
represents an increase of $24 million over the 
estimate of $659 million for the month of May. 
The increase reflects a rise in employment and 
in average earnings. Average weekly salaries 
and wages at July 1 showed a rise of 57c from 
June 1, reaching a new maximum of $45.16. 
These increases, however, must be analyzed 
in conjunction with the rise in prices, to which 
we now turn. 

Price movements 

The cost-of-living index has again reached a 
new high. On August 1 the index stood at 
168.5, a gain of 1.0 points from July 3 and of 
5.7 points from August 1, 1949. High food 
costs were chiefly responsible for the increase, 
although home furnishings and services, fuel 
and light, and clothing also rose. The food 
subindex rose 2.4 points to 216.7, as the price
